Isn't it amazing that even in a bad economy, politicians still manage to find money....

The most recent numbers available, through Friday, showed that Democratic candidates and their allies spent $142 million on television advertising across all House races in the general election, compared with $119 million by Republican candidates and their backers.
In the Senate, Republican candidates and their allies outspent Democrats, $159 million to $120 million.

  • Politicians do not just "Find" that money.

    Corporations/Unions/ and People (etc) give that money to politicians. These people "found" that money to give.

    So people the general public in this "bad economy" found the funds to donate to politicians/political orgs/political causes.
